Many interesting things to see and some time they have special exhibits for an extra fee. 3rd Monday Night of each month enjoy free admission from 5:30 pm to 8:30 pm.”

Baseball Stadium
“Rogers centre is a place to visit if you are a big baseball fan. On a sunny day, the sky dome will be open and it is a good photo shooting opportunity. Please take note that level 5 (the most affordable ticket) zone 524, 525, 523 are the best photo shooting zones. Baseball is not hot sports in Canada, so tickets are very affordable. It is way cheaper than watch a NY Yankees and LA Angels game. But parking is not very cheap, better park somewhere near Wellington Street instead of parking in the Rogers Centre. ”

“https://casaloma.ca/ Sir Henry Pellatt, the dreamer behind Toronto’s famous heritage site; Casa Loma, was born to his British parents in Kingston, Ontario on January 6, 1859. Ambitious from his youth, Sir Henry Pellatt left his studies at Upper Canada College when he was seventeen to pursue a career in commerce in the family business. By the age of twenty-three, he became a full partner in his father’s stock brokerage firm Pellatt and Pellatt. That year was also marked by his marriage to Mary Dodgeson, whom he met when he was twenty. Even as a young man, Henry Pellatt embraced the spirit of the family motto “Devant Si Je Puis” or “Foremost If I Can”. When he met his bride-to-be, Sir Pellatt had already achieved local renown in 1879 for beating the U. S. amateur champion of the one mile race. Travels to Europe gave him the love for fine art and architecture, which would spur his vision of Casa Loma-“House on the Hill.” This romantic side was mirrored by his other lifelong passion-his involvement with the military, specifically the Queen’s Own Rifles. ”

“It's flagship building where the Drake Hotel started it all (not to be confused with the hip hop artist of the same name), this hotel/restaurant/rooftop patio/brunch spot/live music venue has something on at all times. Very tasty food, incredible cocktails and drinks and a good time all round. Its definitely a good spot to check out. And they've replicated their success 3 times since, so they must have a good thing going. (Mind the renovations going on during 2019).”
